. good morning, america. this morning -- the face of a kidnapper. our first look at the man holding a 5-year-old boy hostage in an undergrown bunker. we speak to children. >> he said, i'll kill you all. >> and the abduction. the voice. the man behind the manti te'o hoax. is it really him? home alone. the 11-year-old hiding in the closet dialing 911 as burglars ransacked the family home.
how his quick-thinking saved the day. and are you ready for some ground hog? it's ground hog day and super bowl weekend. so, this morning, we're asked the ultimate question, can the ground hog predict the winner of the big game? meet staten island chuck. it's also groundhog day. we should say this whole thing of animal predicting the weather, makes our meteorologist ginger zee mildly defensively. >> he sat next to me in thermal dynamics. >> it's the groundhog or me? make a choice. good morning to everyone at home. we got you covered from the big easy, coaching brothers jim and john harbaugh will be on
opposite sides tomorrow. they square off for the first time in a pregame news conference. who came out on top? you have a brother, you get this? >> yes. i have always lost. this morning, behind the scenes one of the best of the super bowl ads. a baby budweiser cliez dale. >> if you're watching the game, you want to eat, right? from the show that brought you the 47-layer dip, now, bam, nacho cheese lasagna. >> apparently it's low fat? >> no. we're going to start with news. we're going to take a first look at the man who provoked a crisis this morning. hostage negotiations in the movies, but this one is stranger and more disturbing than fiction. involving a 5-year-old boy and a
survivalist and real no end in sight. abc's gio benitez is in midland city. >> good morning. this is now day five of this hostage standoff happening right there in the building. behind that building there in the distance. now, this for the first time we are learning new details about how it all started. this morning, a photo of the man police said launch a dramatic stage standoff. jimmy lee dykes has been holding 5-year-old ethan against his will. communicating with the negotiators through the pipe >> i looked up and he's talking about threatening to kill us all or something. >> it all happened when dykes stormed on to this school bus and kidnapped the child. >> i just want two kids.
>> 14-year-old and her 12-year-old brother were all on that bus. they said that dykes got on and gave the driver what appeared to be a gift of broccoli and a note and demanded two children. >> the bus driver kept saying, please get off the bus. so, he just tried to back up and he pulled out the gun and he just shot him. and he just took ethan. >> when all of this started, what were you thinking? >> i was shocked. like, i never thought that i would have to go through a shootout. >> reporter: they were able to escape. as dykes ran off carrying little ethan. that's when their mother got the call about the shooting. >> i grabbed all three of them at once. i started crying. >> reporter: the children had seen dykes before.
constantly working on his fence. neighbors say that he was a survivalist and had been violent towards local animals in the past. >> he was very protective about his stuff. when he stared at you he looked kind of crazy. >> reporter: as for little ethan, we learned that he likes to sit in front-row seat. it believes that he's a child with autism. >> to everyone watching, nervous about ethan, what do you say? >> ethan would make it out there. >> reporter: really these children believe that bus driver is a hero here, he immediately pushed an emergency button in that bus and tried calling 911 when he was shot. by the way, police told us they believe that the child is physically unharmed, so that's some good news this morning.
>> that's good news. gio has been on this story. let's go brad garrett, he joins us from washington this morning. brad, take us inside these hostage negotiations, how do you negotiate with a survivalist who has plenty of food and everything else he needs to stay in there, doesn't have to leave any time soon? >> it's all about doing certain things in an order. in other words, what do you want, mr. dykes? early on in this negotiations, he would have told them he wants a, b and c. but what they're going to do is negotiate pieces of that, for example, it appears that they have been able to get food and perhaps medicine into the bunker. now, that's important. because, it's mr. dykes humanizing his captor.
dan, this case creates some unique challenges for tactical teams. because, how do you get into this bunker if they have to go in and safely get this 5-year-old out? one entrance i suspect that there's no way to do a dynamic entry where you get in flash green ad and grab him. it's a confined space. the problem is, you got a guy who's anti-government and is bent on doing one particular thing. my guess is, he's not going to get what he wants. >> he spent a lot of time preparing for this, do you think this can end peacefully as more and more days go on? >> it's very difficult to really figure that out. only because, at some point, i think, they're going to probably have to go in there. because he's not just going to let this child go. now, hopefully that won't be the
case. i'm not convinced that will be the best. ideally, can they take this child out? >> such a young child. brad garrett, we appreciate your time this morning. now, let's turn to ron claiborne for the other developing stories this morning. >> hi, there. we begin with that terrorist attack on the u.s. embassy in turkey that left one security guard dead. washington is now warning americans to stay away from u.s. complexes in turkey. >> u.s. and turkish officials are coming through all of the evidence they can find to find out who was behind this. u.s. officials are actually sifting through some of the debris that explosion caused yesterday. now, this bomb could have been much more deadly and it wasn't because of new security.
that glass is bulletproof and this gate protects the embassy all of the way around. the building itself is about 500 feet. they're back at work and the across town, there's a funeral for the security guard. >> okay, nick shif rin reporting. wall street is within striking distance of its all-time high. the dow closed above 14,000 for the first time in five years. the benchmark is now just 155 points away from its record high close. a convict was apprehended late last night without incident. he just walked out on wednesday after a local charge against him was dismissed. officials didn't know the
paperwork. he had been sent to chicago to face the charge that was dropped there. dozens of students have been disciplined over a cheating scandal that has rocked harvard university. 60 students have been asked to temporarily withdraw from the school. as many as 125 students were implicated on cheating for the introduction to congress course. they had the exact same answers word for word. finally, we heard talk of a chicken wing shortage, that wasn't the case in philadelphia on friday, about 20,000 people turned out for wing bowl 21. the competition, james "the bear" mcdonnell was the champion. he said that he planned to celebrate by eating some philly cheese steaks. which is why they call him the bear.
check out this amazing statistic. today is the first day since 1983 neither bill nor hillary clinton have been in government office. ending a run of 10,980 days. hillary clinton remaining coy on what's next. reena ninan is in washington. >> reporter: it was quite the sendoff. complete with gifts from staffers. and everyone tsa-approved three-ounce clear bottles for air travel. >> thank you. >> reporter: it was a good-bye a source close to the secretary said, high-charge and sentimental. >> quite a challenging week, saying good-bye to so many people. >> hi, how are you? >> reporter: labeled as traveling more than 1 million
mil miles. >> i have spent many hours here in washington, around the world and in airplanes. >> reporter: she made clear from the start she wasn't living in anyone's shadow. >> my husband isn't secretary of state. i am. >> reporter: since then she's learned many new moves. >> as i look back over these past four years, i am very proud of the work we have done together. >> reporter: as she said her good-byes friday, she called for the mission to continue. >> i know that the world we are trying to help bring into being, in the 21st century, will have many difficult days. but i am more optimistic today than i was when i stood here four years ago. >> reporter: driving away for a private gathering at her home. she's not ready to fully reveal
her next act. >> i will miss you. i will probably be dialing opes just to talk. i will wonder what you all are doing. because i know that, because of your efforts, day after day, we are making a real difference. >> and her successor has already been sworn in. tell us about that, reena. >> he was sworn in yesterday afternoon. he's expected to address the state department employees early monday morning. i have a feeling, dan, that he'll receive less criticism over his hair styles than she did. >> the former massachusetts senator john kerry sworn in yesterday and sworn in with cup cakes. i love that. >> welcome to the world's most stressful day and here's a cup
cake. a dramatic 911 call made by a terrified young boy who was home alone when thieves broke into his florida home. it turns out it was his quick-thinking that helped police catch the intruder. >> reporter: he showed plenty of courage and as you said, some quick-thinking by grabbing a land line phone and calling for help as intruders came barging into his family's home in miami beach. >> please hurry? >> okay are you there? >> yes, i'm home. >> reporter: you can hear the panic in his voice. 11-year-old boy, fighting his overwhelming fear as he calls 911 from a closet. all while a group of burglars ransacked his miami beach home. >> i was just scared and shocked. please don't see me. >> reporter: the boy whose identity we have concealed was home alone at the time.
his mom out for a quick jog. he knew something was wrong when he heard a loud crash. then they started rummaging through drawers taking everything from jewelry to an iphone. >> i heard them breaking things and things falling on the floor. they weren't speaking english. they were speaking like russian, haitian or french or something. >> reporter: police arrived. catching one of the suspects at the scene. two others would be caught hours later. as for our young hero, he received a medal and a serious pat on the back from miami beach police. >> helping us to put some real bad guys away. he did a good job. >> the boy's mother said that she always told her son to run and hide. it was a lesson well learned. when police arrived he was still
in the closet. trembling but well. >> you can't blame him. >> the first thing he wanted to know was how his dog lolo was? time for weather and ginger zee. we'll start with lake-effect snow. one of my favorite things to talk about it. northern ohio, 15 inches of snow including chardon, ohio, it was kind of spotty, though, that's how it's going to be today. buffalo, 6 to 10 inches. watertown, also. snowmaker has given chicago some snow this morning. parts of west virginia is going to pick up some snow. northeast, by tomorrow, a couple of inches. knew shanuisance than a e snows. it feels like 12 in chicago.
